List Item Count Reset Accessible via Anaplan Connect




The ability to trigger the “Reset” action/button in the list configuration tab (for numbered lists), using Anaplan Connect to automate this process.


Example of Enhancement: 

Anaplan Connect has an operation that enables reset of a list. And the index for a list can be reset without limitation (i.e. it doesn’t have to be in between 899,999,999 and 999,999,999 to enable a reset).


Benefit / Impact:

Our design requires exporting a record list from one model to another with great frequency to support reporting needs. This results in the numbered list IDs rapidly increasing, requiring frequent, unpredictable resets, otherwise this model-to-model data push fails.


Current Process:

  • We move data from a planning model to a reporting model in Anaplan, to get around size and performance limitations
  • We do it by pulling data from the planning model to the reporting model, specifically pulling data into a numbered list that contains one record per intersection of data
  • Each time we have to clear and re-load the entire list
  • The list has 10M items
  • We push data on an hourly basis to enable up-to-date reporting
  • The model administrator has to frequently log in and check the current index value to monitor whether we’re approaching the limit
  • Important: There exists unpredictability around when we can reset the index as the list item index of the selected list must be between 899,999,999 and 999,999,999.

  • Hi @Rebecca


    Any word on this? We have 2 customers (big ones for Anaplan) who need this functionality, and it would help them avoid technical workarounds that would be time-consuming to build and maintain. This time could otherwise be allocated to expansion into new areas of the business and adding value that benefits end-users.


    I can DM you with the client names if that helps with prioritization.


    Thank you,

  • @Gwen.pryor Any update on when the  above requested enhancement that is "on Roadmap" can be expected.  We have a lot of instances of nightly scheduled jobs failing (and all subsequent jobs loading incomplete data) whenever this limit is reached. We certainly would like to automate this numbered list index count reset.

  • Hi,


    Do we have a workaround for this yet ?

  • Hi all!

    this is important for us too, but we also would like to have an opportunity to monitor the lists which will require the re-set soon.

    we have a long list of models and lists inside and it is not feasible to check each list in each model, 

    because of this we are having incidents time to time as interfaces just failing.
